Cavendish comments on 2013 Giro route - after cooking risotto

Nibali, Contador, Cavendish and Hesjedal, Giro d'Italia 2013 route presentation

Mark Cavendish probably did not expect to be cooking risotto during the Giro d'Italia presentation today in Milan. However, before RCS Sport unveiled the 2013 edition, he served the antipasto.

"I've never cooked before!" he told Cycling Weekly, referring to other Grand Tour presentations. "It's different. It's just Italian. They love a show, don't they? I came to the Giro presentation last year and it went on for so long, but it was nice to be cooking with good friends."
